About us

Our innovative approach and the unique perspectives of our people have placed us at the cutting edge of financial markets throughout our 200-year history. This heritage provides us with both a strong foundation and a clear vision for today, as well as our future.

Today we are one of the world's largest independent financial advisory groups, with a global network of 3,800 colleagues in more than 50 countries. The core values of the Rothschild family have formed the guiding principles of the way we work across our four complementary financial businesses. As a company and as individuals we seek to be thoughtful, creative and principled in all that we do.

Our history

In 1810, successful businessman Mayer Amschel Rothschild (the great, great, great, great grandfather of our current Executive Chairman, Alexandre de Rothschild) created the family's first partnership agreement. He had developed innovative methods of trading that added real value to his clients by understanding their needs and taking a long-term view. His five sons went on to establish banking businesses in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Naples and Vienna. Together they created Europe's fastest, most secure network for exchanging market information. Their descendants built on this to lay the foundations for the strong, globally renowned business the family retains control of to this day.

Our future

Today we are committed to continuing our heritage of taking bold perspectives. Our 200-year history of entrepreneurship means we're never satisfied with conventional wisdom. And as we look to the future, because we take the time to understand our clients in depth, we can continually innovate to meet their evolving needs. This is demonstrated by the creation of our financing and investor advisory services in Global Advisory, the development of our Merchant Banking business, the creation of tailored Wealth and Asset Management businesses for different markets, and placing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) at the core of all our business practices.

Our commitments

Our businesses

Global Advisory

Working in finance is all about building relationships. In Global Advisory, you will act as a trusted, impartial partner to our clients, which include corporations, investment houses, families, entrepreneurs and governments. Our deep understanding of financial markets, our global network and our unrivalled deal flow help us achieve outstanding results whether through financing solutions, strategic advice, or mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Wealth Management

For us, wealth management starts with wealth preservation, in an industry where short-term thinking is the norm. Our 650 Wealth Management professionals share our long-term view and work to gain a deep understanding of the often-complex issues facing wealth owners – helping them dampen risk to protect their financial and non-financial assets while still delivering good returns.

Asset Management

We are a global multi-specialist asset manager. We pursue long-term strategies for the institutional clients, financial intermediaries and third-party distributors who trust us to manage their investments. For our people, that means building satisfying, lasting relationships as they design asset management solutions around their clients' needs.

Merchant Banking

Our investment arm is founded on three intertwined principles: our passion for investing, respect for risk and culture of partnership. Colleagues in Merchant Banking help to manage global assets to the tune of more than €14 billion through funds dedicated to corporate and secondary private equity, senior and junior credits, and multi-managers funds and co-investments.
